Google, ever since the pandemic began last year, has been partnering with various governmental and non-governmental agencies in India to showcase authentic information about the Covid-19, its spread, active cases and other resources in India. Then in March this year as the Indian government began the Covid-19 vaccination drive in the country, Google started showing Covid-19 vaccination centers in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Google Maps, Google Assistant and Google Search. Today, the tech giant announced more updates to these services in India.

Google today announced that starting this week, Google Search, Google Assistant and Google Maps will show more information for over 13,000 Covid-19 vaccination locations across the country. This information will include details such as availability of appointment slots at each center, vaccines and doses offered (dose 1 or dose 2), expectations for pricing (paid or free) and link to the Indian government’s CoWIN website for booking a vaccination slot.
